An elderly, blind dog is being held at the Los Angeles County Animal Control – Baldwin Park facility in California – where is her owner? The 13-year-old dog, named Azul, was adopted in February 2018 – the shelter has reached out to her owner, but Azul is still at the facility, waiting.
What is known?
On February 11, a social media post was made on Azul’s behalf:
It is terribly heartbreaking just how many BLIND seniors find themselves at the shelter, and Azul is the latest I am trying to stay optimistic for a positive outcome, because Azul had been adopted not too long ago, in Feb. 2018, from the Baldwin Park shelter, and whoever adopted her knew she was a special needs dog. The shelter is currently performing a trace on her microchip to locate her adopter, which is why she is not available to the public until Feb. 21st.
We know a dog like Azul won’t have adopters lining up to put their name on the waitlist, so we’re hoping the #RescueVillage can start networking Azul to their favorite rescues. Azul is geriatric with worn teeth, and has obvious vision impairment… she has abnormal eyes (microphthalmic) with discharge. Despite her circumstances, this sweetie is friendly and gentle.
Azul was taken in on February 10 – it is now February 18 and Azul has not been reclaimed.
You can lend this blind senior dog a hand by sharing her adoption information.
